"The premium for the same bronze policy I'm being offered in rural Colorado (zip code 81321) for $1,023 costs $642 in Denver (zip code 80201) My former policy $399 has been canceled. The new policy represents a $633 monthly increase with no subsidy. The new policy would be 15+% of my gross income. With other financial obligations, where is this $633 to come from? Congress needs to level premiums by eliminating the regions and having state wide plans with one set of premiums for all. Or, simply let us keep our existing policies."
